Getting Started

How to Refer

Here are 4 essential steps to referring

Step 1: Be open and share

The first step in becoming a referral magnet is your willingness to open up and share information about GAU and your experience as a student or someone close to GAU. It can be as simple as posting on Facebook about what you’re learning in the curriculum or announcing that you got your first client. For example: “So grateful for GAU’s curriculum. This school is amazing! In addition, tell your friends and family what you’re up to. You never know who you might inspire to consider this education for themselves.

Step 2: Listen & Notice

As you begin opening up about GAU and what we have to offer, take notice of how people respond. You may get comments on your Facebook post or a friend may show a lot of interest in the idea of becoming a student. Those are your referral opportunities. If you’re not sure whether someone is a potential referral, here are some key questions to keep in mind when considering if they’re a good fit for GAU: Are they already involved in the healthcare profession and interested in furthering their studies? By taking time to listen carefully and respond accordingly, you will be much more likely to refer successfully.

Step 3: Introduce Your Connections

When you refer your connections to speak to someone at GAU, introduce them to your contact via email. A member of our team will answer any remaining questions and connect them to our admissions team when they’re ready to take the next step. We’ll also ensure that you’re listed as that person’s referrer so you are eligible to receive a referral reward if they enroll. If you don’t introduce your friend to us via email, remind them to mention your name as their referrer at the time of enrollment.

Step 4: Follow up

Sometimes all it takes is a friendly reminder to motivate someone to take action, so make sure to check in with your referrals to see where they are in the decision-making process and offer your support.
